Taylor tends to lean more liberal in her political views. When asked about Donald Trump she said, “I’ve been kind of across-the-board pretty offended by Mr. Trump”. Taylor also identifies as a lesbian which would further suggest that she’s a Democrat. Members of the Tea Party consider her way more conservative and even a hero, simply because she played that kind of role in the book/movie Atlas Shrugged: Part I. The author of the book is a known conservative/libertarian who is against big government, feminism, and even calls himself chauvinistic. But it seems foolish to assume that since she played the part that she believes in those values.
